From School Library Journal:

Gr 7 Up--A collection of well-chosen excerpts from reviews praising or criticizing this classic novel and of essays that highlight thematic and literary aspects of the story. The selections examine meaty questions; e.g., Is Orwell's satire a rich and provocative animal fable or is it an oversimplified caricature of a complex issue? Is the novel a bitter critique of Soviet society and history or is it an antitotalitarian allegory of ideology? Excerpts frequently compare and contrast the book with works such as Arthur Koestler's Darkness at Noon, Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels, and Joseph Conrad's Nostromo, and they refer to major historical events and movements in this century--the Russian Revolution, the rise of Fascism and Communism, and McCarthyism. More substantial than "Cliff's Notes" and its clones, this critical anthology will help students come to terms with the provocative issues that Orwell raised.
